7:00AM Meet + Greet/Gear Up We meet all hikers at Zion Canyon Village (Shuttle Stop 1 on the Springdale Route): 147 Zion – Mount Carmel Hwy, Springdale, UT 84767, USA. Your guide will meet you in front of the pedestrian bridge entrance to Zion National Park. Your guide will have all needed gear for hiking the Zion Narrows, which you will put on before boarding the Zion Canyon Shuttle. Any personal items you wish to leave behind may be left in our vehicle for the duration of the excursion. 7:15 Board Zion Canyon Shuttle 1. Shuttle Ride: The Zion Canyon Shuttle was first introduced in 2000 to reduce traffic and parking issues within the canyon. The shuttle will take us along the 8-mile Scenic Drive to the Temple of Sinawava and the trailhead for The Narrows. Though we are not permitted to interpret the park while on the shuttle, we are happy to answer any questions you may have. 2. Riverside Walk: The 1-mile paved trail is a great introduction to the narrows, and a wonderful opportunity to get to talk more about the park. We will learn why the canyon walls are wet, and why this leads to rockfalls. 3. The Narrows: The paved trail ends, and the only way to continue is to forge our path up the river. As we navigate the rocky river bottom and slick stones, don’t forget to stop, and look up at the towering vermillion and cream cliffs above us. 4. Wall Street: If you think this name is familiar, and not just because of the financial district, it is because Bryce Canyon also has a section called Wall Street. This section of the Narrows received this name for the proximity of the canyon walls to one another. 5. Orderville Gulch + Turnaround Point: If desired, hikers are welcome to take a brief visit up the Orderville gulch canyon. This narrow canyon is great for photos but is not permitted for hiking guides. This is the point at which we will turn around to head back.
